Greetings and Happy New Year! As I write this post, we are already two weeks into 2024 and the activity of the holiday season of 2023 is fading into a lovely memory. Every year, I participate in looking back at my most “liked” instagram posts as a way of reflecting on my own memories of…

Aaron & Jessica’s Springtime Wedding Celebration at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island

April showers brought only happiness and joy as Aaron & Jessica celebrated their wedding at the elegant Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island.

Caitlin & Chris wedding at the Sullivan House: Block Island Wedding Photographer

Caitlin & Chris’ wedding seemed predestined to many of their family and friends. The couple grew up as friends, as their families lived near each other in Massachusetts and both families spent summer vacations on Block Island. Over the years, there were moments of being “more than friends” – little glimpses of what was to…

Slainte Mhath & Happy Holidays!

Slainte Mhath! (Gaelic/Scottish for Good Health) The trip I took to Scotland with my husband and son during the summer of 2014 made a huge impact on me, so it only makes sense that many of the instagram images I took in Scotland are included in the “2014 in Review” holiday card I am sending…

The Isle of Mull, Scotland

Another collage of images from our amazing trip to Scotland earlier this summer. it already feels like a long time ago, but these images take me right back to our visit to every castle & ruin, every field and stone wall, every old wooden door and beach.

Hi there


About Susan

My wedding and portrait photography business is located in the heart of South County, Rhode Island close to URI and the scenic, south coast beaches. I grew up here and feel so lucky to be able to work and create in such a beautiful location! My approach to photography is much like my approach to life: creative, relaxed, natural and fun. I would describe my style as a blend of candid & photojournalistic with traditional & artistic images. I love taking the time to create some beautiful, romantic portraits of my brides & grooms, but also the spontaneous moments throught the wedding day. 

I consider my website and blog a place where I can visually journal about the amazing people and places I get to photograph. Not only do I consider myself exceptionally lucky to be making a living taking photographs for people at important moments in their lives, but I also get to meet an amazing cross section of people I might not otherwise get to know. In the ten years I have been in business, I have had the chance to photograph couples riding high on the excitement of their recent engagement, on their wedding day, parents-to-be waiting to meet their new child, newborn babies, children marking milestone birthdays and families who want to remember a certain time in their lives by capturing it in a photographic portrait.  

In more recent years, I have had the opportunity to photograph the weddings of younger siblings and friends of previous wedding clients, and the maternity, newborn and family portraits of couples whose weddings I photographed in years past. It feels amazing to know my creative vision of these occasions is a part of their lives and their family history and I am grateful for each and every one of them. When I say I love what I do, it is from a genuine place. I can't imagine doing anything else and feeling as creativly satisfied and pleased to make my clients happy.  

I studied photography at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) for undergraduate school and received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
